LAGOS, Nigeria; 4th April 2018
The #TakeItOnline campaign organised by web hosting company, WhoGoHost has concluded on a successful note. The campaign, which launched on March 5 2018, was aimed at helping small and medium Nigerian enterprises take their businesses to another level by creating their own websites.
In the course of the campaign, business owners signed up to have their websites designed, built and hosted, as they all benefited from the wide range of incentives WhoGoHost offered.
The main objective of #TakeItOnline was to help the average Nigerian business owners create a web-space for their business, in order to benefit from the numerous business opportunities and operational advantages that come with owning a website; hence, a 50% discount on web design and 20% discount on site builder were offered. Interested users also got shared hosting services by visiting the campaign URL (www.whogohostonline.com/takeitonline).
Commenting on the success of the campaign, CEO WhoGoHost, Toba Obaniyi said, “#TakeItOnline is a labour of love that we created out of a desire to help businesses grow in Nigeria. Having experienced the benefits of running an online business, we realised that most businesses in Nigeria are still in the dark regarding benefits that owning a website guarantees their business. With #TakeItOnline, there is no longer any reason for SMEs to be left behind as was previously the case.”
A number of celebrities and high profile individuals including Nollywood actress Mercy Aigbe, actor Samuel Ajibola, on-air personalities Yaw and Nedu, Nigerian Lifestyle Youtuber Sisi Yemmie and renowned blogger Olorisupergal have publicly lent their support to #TakeItOnline. Social media stars Maraji, Broda Shaggi MC Lively, and Oluwadolarz also took part in the campaign, with their hilarious skits amassing more than 600,000 views and 10,000 comments cumulatively.
Another major highlight of the campaign was a visit to business owners at the popular Computer Village, Ikeja, Lagos, where several entrepreneurs were enlightened about the advantages and benefits of owning websites and having a web presence outside of social media in today’s digital-driven world.
